Your PAIN approach is like a powerful disinfectant seeking out and crushing fear causing germs leaving you with fearless soldiers you turn loose to seek out and destroy enemy running backs.

And here I thought I was just teaching them how to tackle.

Bob is trying to teach players who are scared of contact a technical way to make tackles.

I don't think a player who's afraid can make tackles.  Or even play the game.  The players need to be slowed down, explained to, taught and given the answers to the questions, before they take the test.

Most coaches teach football as if it were a pop quiz, and there was hell to pay if a question is answered incorrectly.

How much of your job do you think you'd have learned if your boss was yelling at you from Day 1?  I'm willing to bet "zero" because you wouldn't even have put up with it.  You'd have told him to go ____ himself and quit.  Do kids have that option?  Not if Dad is "forcing them to play."  But they're coached as if yelling passes for quality instruction.

Run as fast as you can to the ball. When you get there make him sorry he ever contemplated stepping on the field.
Everyone complicates this. Run through the ball carrier and put his ass in the dirt. Just how i approach it.

Same here coaches  way over complicate the simplest task....

If we left it that way and didn't "complicate" it with technique, it'd result in high, dangerous, and ineffective hits.  The way you're describing it is how kids play pickup football with no adult supervision.  They hunt heads.  They don't play angles.  They do gang tackle, but it takes the entire gang to bring anybody down because they're all Greco-Roman wrestling.

Yes.  I think it helps.

Many psychologists who work on phobias use technical methods to put the client in a position where avoidance is less attractive.

I do too, Bob.  I was just contrasting the different approaches.
